Media image of the most widespread new religious movements in czech republic
Vopatová, Helena ; Šoltys, Otakar (advisor) ; Provecho López, Juan Ignacio (referee)
The main purpose of this thesis is to describe how the respectable Czech newspapers and news websites access to three major new religious movements in our country. Thus the Jehovah's Witnesses, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Grail Movement. In the theoretical part, I generally define the term "new religious movement", then I describe in detail the three above-mentioned movements. The following chapter deals with the relationship between media and new religious movements. The theoretical part is closed by describing the used methodologies. In the analytical part of this thesis I make discourse analysis of the chosen media messages. I mark out specific characteristics and roles that media attribute to the members of the examined new religious movements. I cite concrete passages from which these characteristics result. Simultaneously I refer to texts that relate to these characteristics. The results of the analysis I summarize and describe in the last chapter of the analytical part, in which I also present an overview of all the characteristics and roles that appeared in the media. The summary sums up the results of the analysis and evaluate whether the target of this work was filled.
Standard and non-standard language in printed media communication and its impact on discussions about standard language
Pospíšilová, Martina ; Šoltys, Otakar (advisor) ; Jirák, Jan (referee)
The present Master's thesis analyses language means in printed media with a particular focus on national daily newspapers from the second trimester of 1993. That year, there was an important linguistic conference on standardised Czech and language culture. The analysis examines especially language means that deviate from the standardised norm of the language. The theoretical part discusses key concepts, such as norm and codification or national language and its varieties. The understanding of these terms is critical for the analytical part of the thesis where language means used in printed media are being analysed using quantitative content analysis. The aim of this analysis is to describe their motivation of use and function. The results are then compared with the proceedings of the 1993 conference on standardised Czech and language culture held in Olomouc. The thesis provides a clear view on how the occurrence of non-standardised language means in media influences academic discussion on standardised Czech.

Submitted bachelor thesis focuses on the crisis communication in politics and on Grice's maxims applied there. In its theoretical part the thesis analyses the terms crisis and crisis communication. It sets the criteria on which the recognition of crisis is based, as well as it offers theories on how one should create and use arguments in these particular situations. Besides that, the thesis also evaluates general argumentation skills used by politicians during unfavourable times and compare them with principles Paul Grice defined as the base for successful communication. The theoretical part hence furthermore describes Grice's maxims, as well as it monitors Czech politics in selected period and necessary context. Second part of the thesis uses semiotic analysis to examine press conference speeches of selected politicians during the government crisis in March and April 2012 and searches for Grice's maxims used there.

The aim of this study is to analyse language of internet media focused on skateboarding. An essential element of the introduction is a brief history of skateboarding globaly and here in the Czech Republic. The basis for the analysis of contemporary audiovisual clips also touches on the development of the distribution of skateboard videos. In this study I also mention the role of YouTube as a distributing tool and phenomenom of instant fame, which is not strong only in skateboarding, but it is a phenomenon across the full spectrum of society. The principal basis of this study is the definition of two print and later Internet traditions in skateboard journalism - Thrasher and Transworld Skateboarding magazine. The study also concerns itself with maping out the Czech media environment, where skateboarding has its own place. The genesis of skateboard media in the Czech Republic follows the formation of Thrasher and Transworld, which is a very interesting fact that is important for the general understanding of the topic. For deeper insight into skateboard subculture, I also mention the journalistic style of Czech skateboarding media. The Internet media has a special emphasis on visual content, more so than print media, due to traditional text being replaced by moving pictures, and therefore with help of...

Firstly, it describes its development, criteria and use. The following part of this paper describes the program "Q" itself, which focuses on a queer minority, and is being broadcasted by Czech television. The program has been analyzed using a semiotic analysis of television. The animated open (theme) of the program has been studied thoroughly; I also tried to find commonalities for other parts appearing frequently in episodes. A closer approach has been given to three chosen parts as the representatives of the program - two reports and one interview - which should make the structure and the coverage of the program easier to understand. The first report talks about the idea of pregnant men, the second part is an interview of the editor-in-chief of the British lifestyle magazine for men, Attitude, and the third (a report) covers transsexual people and the possibility of surgery in order to change their sex. A detailed analysis focuses on all three parts of the program: the visual, auditive and textual part.
